The word "free" makes any deal a good deal, so when EA throws two new courses for Burnout Dominator on the 'net for you to download for free, you really can't complain.
Carnival Point is one of the new courses, available to download now directly to your PSP memory card, with Red Gate to follow on June 7.

An overwhelming majority of gamers are male, so it makes perfect sense for every marketing team in the world to target their software at young guys. And what do all men ages 18 to one zillion love? Girls, gore and big loud machines. If they could make a game about a firefighting bikini squad that hunts down zombies in a decked-out sex/fire truck, world peace would be declared.

Retro classic Boulder Dash is heading for DS and PSP with the cleverly-titled Boulder Dash Rocks, complete with a new look. Now, although we haven't seen a diamond prospector in the flesh, we don't reckon they look like aliens (see below). Never mind though - at least Rockford's big head will make him look like that classic sprite we used to love on the Spectrum.
The first game started life as a home console game in 1984 and was ported to arcades shortly afterwards when the
Of all the major sports, baseball might just be the least accessible as a gaming experience. Between obscure laws like the infield fly rule and knowing what pitch is best to throw in a 2-1 count, it's just not that easy to pick up and play.
That's probably what 2K Sports and Visual Concepts were thinking when they thought up The Bigs, a new baseball title that aims to be an accessible, arcade-style experience. Now we've got some new details and screenshots to share with
All you role players and Japanophiles out there have something to get excited about this week, besides the vernal equinox. Publisher XSEED announced that they are bringing three new RPGs, released in Japan last year, to the North American market later this year. Here's the scoop on these transpacific titles:
Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground (PSP)
Imagine a bizarre cross-breeding of Diablo and Viva Pinata, and you've got a good idea of what to expect from Dungeon Maker. As the Architect, you

Does your pulse quicken at the thought of barreling through city streets at ludicrous speeds toward oncoming traffic?

Ever think back to your high school days and wonder what might have happened if you had gotten up the courage to ask that special someone out? Maybe you're thinking forward to your high school days, and musing on what might replace recess in your daily schedule? Or perhaps you're in high school, looking fraternize outside of your social caste without fear of vicious reprisal? Whether you're looking to relive, pre-live, or alterna-live high school, Brooktown High is the place for you.
Let the haters and the old ladies complain about how those newfangled video computer games teach us to be killers; we've always taken the view that violent games are a pressure valve for blowing off steam in a harmless way. Don't believe it? Play something fierce and bloody the next time you're in a really bad mood, and then try telling us you didn't feel better afterward.
But why stop there? If games can keep you from climbing a clock tower and expressing your inner pain in the form of
